Intel Develops 22nm Haswell CPU For 2013 Launch

Intel is currently working on its 22 nanometer Haswell computer chips that are due to come out in year 2013. Haswell will enjoy the same power-saving technology, known as tri-gate 3D transistor technology that was first developed in accordance with the Ivy Bridge chip.

Intel boasts on its blog that their floating-point multiply significantly increases peak FLOPS (floating operations per second) and provides enhanced precision to improve their mathematics.

Nvidia GTX 560 Hitting Stores Today

Nvidia is grinding gears, but in the best possible way, with continued use of its DirectX 11 GPU (graphics processing unit). The company is offering the perfect median between the current GeForce GTX 550 and the GTX 560 Ti. This time, without the Ti, the company is releasing the new GeForce GTX 560 and is touted to be a replacement for the current GTX 460 1GB.

The new GTX 560, released today, will have an identical number of CUDA cores, texture units, and ROPs, but will have an overclocked system, increasing performance. I am currently running an Nvidia GTX 470 in an Antec 1200 case.
